Tab Benoit is a Cajun man who’s definitely got the blues. In 2007, Benoit won the dual awards of B.B. King Entertainer of the Year and Best Contemporary Male Performer at the Blues Music Awards (formerly the W.C. Handy Awards) in Memphis. Medicine, Benoit’s latest release on Telarc, successfully joins two gifted guitarists/songwriters in a session that proves greater than the sum of its very talented parts. The 11-track recording features seven new Benoit originals co-written with ace songwriter Anders Osborne. Engineered by David Z, Medicine spotlights the work of keyboardist Ivan Neville, drummer Brady Blade and bassist Corey Duplechin. Fiddler/singer Michael Doucet of BeauSoleil makes a special appearance on three tracks.
Eric Johanson and Jeff McCarty both released CDs on Tab Benoit's Whiskey Bayou Records Revue in 2017. Jeff McCarty is a southern soul singer whose Louisiana musical roots run deep into the soulful Blues Rock genre.
